Gianni Brezzo - Traditional Heart
With a lineup of guitar, saxophone, Rhodes keyboard, bass, drums acoustic and electronic, the music could go many directions, into many genre spaces. One glance at that list and you'd have a different preconceived notion of the sound from one person to the next. Here, the instruments speak both for themselves and, in a way, converse with the musician playing them.
The Traditional Heart is the second album by Cologne-based musician Gianni Brezzo. This is what he has to say about the album and process. “This time the process of making music was more important than the product. Not to allow even a thought regarding the effectiveness of the music; pick up the the instrument on impulse and put it away again; record again. Finding a rhythm during the process. At home.”
